Law Targerm p


Ordinance would
restrict sales of
replica weapons
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Scenes of children and
teenagers toting and shooting
airsoft guns at Key West resi-
dents are popping up more and
more in police reports, and it's
prompted Key West City
Commissioner Clayton Lopez to
act.
Lopez drafted an ordinance
enforcing tighter regulations on
airsoft gun sales, prohibiting
sales to juveniles under age 18
and amending city laws to ban
minors from carrying or firing
the toys on public property. JIis
ordinance will have its first
review at Tuesday's City
Commission meeting.
Commissioners may find
themselves in a verbal crossfire
over the topic, since the mayor
says shop owners aren't to blame


Closure would
impact grouper
-fishing season
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A proposal to halt all
[ grouper fishing in Florida Keys
waters for seven months a year
stems from a huge misunder-
standing, say local fishermen.
"They misinterpreted what
we were saying," said
Marathon commercial fisher-
man Tony laorocci, a board
member of the South Atlantic


Fishery Management Council.
He and others signal that
Keys fishing interests may
push for a separate manage-
ment area in the Keys, especial-
ly if the federal council pursues
its gag grouper closure.
A recently revised report on
proposed changes to the South
Atlantic Council's rules for
snapper and grouper raised the
alarm. Agency staff listed an
alternative suggestion that
would ban fishing for all
grouper in Keys Atlantic waters
from June through December.

Prison ordered for Grassi


Ex firefighter
violated terms
of release
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A federal judge ordered for-
mer Key West firefighter Joseph
Grassi to six months in prison
after he violated the terms of his
supervised release.
U.S. Court Judge James
Lawrence King remanded Grassi
into the custody of the Bureau of
Prisons for six months "with no
additional supervised release to
follow this term," as stated in a
July 28 ruling.
Grassi served nearly three
years in prison after a 2001
arrest for cocaine possession


Joseph Grassi


with intent to
sell. In 2003
he was con-
victed on one
count of pos-
session with
the intent to
distribute, two
counts of
making false
statements to
a federal


grand jury and four counts of
obstruction.
He was released from prison
in 2006.
Last December Grassi was
sentenced to six months of home
confinement for violating his
probation. In King's courtroom
in December Grassi admitted to
unauthorized travel and failing
five cocaine urinalysis tests.
In May Grassi was picked up


for violating that home confine-
ment, just weeks after his wife
died from a drug overdose.
Prominent city officials,
including School Superintendent
Randy Acevedo, City
Commissioner Jose Menendez
and Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson, have vouched for
Grassi's character in past hear-
ings. In letters to King, they
noted that Grassi, after returning
to the Key West community,
coached a boys' football team
and girl's softball league as well
as caring for his ailing mother.
Grassi was allegedly video-
taped in 2001 telling a federal
informant he had sold cocaine to
other members of the Key West
Fire Department. The tapes also
showed him purchasing cocaine.
Grassi was a firefighter in
Key West for a decade.

Diver deaths mar


this mini-season


Harvest reports
show mixed bag.
in many areas
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Two diving deaths marred
this week's lobster mini-season,
a two-day event that seemed to
draw fewer visitors than usual in
some parts of the Keys.
"We didn't see as many
boaters or as many lobster," said
Officer David Dipre of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
"There were quite a few cita-
tions but not as many as last
year," he said.


The FWC and Monroe
County Sheriff's Office were
still compiling reports and statis-
tics at press time Friday.
Three Miami-Dade men were
arrested by FWC officers around
2:30 p.m. Thursday on multiple
conservation counts in Card
Sound waters.
Much of Card Sound is a lob-
ster sanctuary closed to harvest-
ing, but circumstances of the
case were not available Friday.
Carlos Urruchaga, 32, of
Miami died Thursday morning
while using a hookah rig near
Bahia Honda. It was the second
dive-related death during mini-
season in Monroe County.

fiberglass and steel, has gone
missing from her longtime home
in front of the former Treasure
Village on Plantation Key.
An anatomically correct
female lobster standing three sto-
ries high, Betsey actually moved
some weeks before mini-season.
Her current location could not
be determined at press time.
"I've been wondering myself
where she got to," said Judy Hull,
executive director of the
Islamorada Chamber of
Commerce.
Hull lists the giant lobster as
one of Islamorada's most recog-
nizable icons.
Members of the family retain-
ing ownership of the lobster
sculpture could not be reached
this week. Two family members
were traveling overseas.
Rumors around Islamorada
suggest Betsey may have gone for
"a little refurbishment," pending a
move to a new location, most
likely still in the Upper Keys. But
exact details remain elusive.
When a shopping complex
occupied Treasure Village, the
giant lobster successfully served
as a magnet that lured tourists.
Lobster divers enjoyed posing
it,'hina'k and cinch bag ipfront


of the towering crustacean. Some
liked to pose naked with Betsey.
More respectably, she has been
used as backdrop for Sports
Illustrated's swimsuit-issue pho-
tos.
Since the Treasure Village
complex converted to the
Montessori Island Charter
School, having a giant lobster on
the front lawn was no longer a
draw.
Betsey went up for sale.
Asking price: $400,000.
Many inquiries came in but
few serious buyers brought their
checkbooks.
Betsey seemed destined to
take up residence at a refurbished
Papa Joe's restaurant and bar, but
the reconstruction stalled.
Betsey was created in
Marathon by Coco Plum artist
Richard Blaze.
Blaze's main endeavor was
building fiberglass dinosaurs for
miniature golf courses. He was
commissioned to build the giant
lobster for a restaurant.
By the time his five-year con-
struction effort was complete, the
restaurant had folded.
Betsey then was adopted by
the Treasure Village owners.
The Roadside Attractions
Internet site lists Betsey as the
largest non-inflatable crustacean
in America., , ,

Housing help proposed


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


With help from code enforce-
ment fines, Key West may launch
a "Homebuyers' Assistance
Program" that could help 20 fam-
ilies afford down payments.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
will outline his plan at Tuesday's
city commission meeting and
said the time is ripe for this kind
of assistance.
"I think we'll see 20 homes
that will be able to close because
of this," McPherson said.
Funds would come from the
city's affordable housing trust
fund, which doubled in size after
a settlement in a code enforce-
ment case against Galleon
Resorts and Marina at 617 Front
St. Developer Richard Jones


agreed in May to give the city
$300,000 to settle the suit, in
exchange for Key West City
Commission approval on his 20-
unit, market-rate project at 119-
135 Simonton St.
McPherson said his proposed
funding program would take
about $300,000 from the trust
fund and help about 20 families
close on Key West homes, using
an estimated down payment aver-
aging $15,000 per family.
"The maximum amount of
any loan under the Homebuyers
Assistance Program shall be
$20,000," the ordinance reads.
The ordinance excludes sec-
ond-home buyers and requires
applicants to "derive at least 70
percent of their income from


gainful employment in Key
West."
McPherson said that potential
homeowners would be eligible as
long as they make no more than
150 percent of the area median
income. For a family of four in
Monroe County, that figure is
$61,000 annually.
The ordinance also specifies
that the price of a house can't be
higher than 90 percent of Key
West's average area purchase
price. And program's rules would
limit mortgage payments to no
more than 30 percent of a home-
owner's monthly income.
The Key West Housing
Authority would oversee the pro-
gram, McPherson said. His ordi-
nance will go before the City
Commission at 6 p.m. Tuesday,
Old City Hall, 510 Greene St.


'Never proposed summer closure'


GROUPER / From 1

Key West fishing guide Andy
Griffiths, in a letter to council
board members, railed against the
unexpected proposal as "unrea-
sonable, unrealistic, draconian
and irrational."
"We now see a longer pro-
posed closure that will certainly
bankrupt our charter boat busi-
nesses," Griffiths wrote, naming a
half-dozen guides who agree with
his sentiment.
Earlier this year, South
Atlantic staff suggested rule
changes to safeguard the over-
fished stock of gag grouper. In
order to prevent catches of gag
grouper by mistake, the proposal
called for a January-to-March clo-
sure during spawning season for
most types of shallow-water
grouper, including black grouper
and red grouper.
The rule would cover federal
Atlantic waters from Key West
through North Carolina.
Gag grouper are not often
caught in the Keys, but red
grouper and black grouper are
highly desired by local recreation-
al and commercial fishermen.
Dozens of fishermen turned
out for a May hearing in Key
Largo to protest the suggested
closure, which would halt grouper
fishing at the height of the Keys
winter tourism season.
Council members later agreed
to consider creating a separate
management area for the Keys.


Under revised proposals, staff
dropped the winter closure but
included the possibility of the
seven-month closure beginning
June 1.
"We offered to give them a
year-round closure on gag
grouper here if they would leave
the other shallow-water grouper
species alone," said Islamorada
sportfishing captain Bill Kelly,
who serves on the council's
Snapper Grouper Advisory Panel.
"We never proposed a summer
closure," he said. "That's
absolutely incorrect. They've
already taken away sales [by
charterboat crewmen]; this would
strangle us."
South Atlantic Council infor-
mation officer Kim Iverson said
the seven-month grouper closure
in the Keys was included in a
package of possible rules for staff
to study.

Keys Opinion


Senate Republicans

must act on credits

Headlines on Friday blared: "Auto sales plunge again."
General Motors reported a S15.5 billion loss for the second quarter.
Ford reported sales of trucks and SUVs dropped 26 percent in July.
Meanwhile, over in the U.S. Senate, lawmakers pushing renewal of
tax credits for renewable energy stalled in political stalemate.
The Associated Press report indicated that Republican members
oppose the $18 billion energy bill "because they want to make
domestic drilling a priority."
To survive a threatened presidential veto, the Senate would have to
muster the 60 votes needed for override. Democrats pushing for
renewing these tax credits are short at least nine votes.
The legislation sticking in the craw of GOP senators would extend
solar-energy investment tax credits for eight years, and extend cred-
its for alternative fuel and wind power initiatives by one year.
Guess it's clear that the oil industry lobbyists in Washington have
far more clout than those hirsute environmentalists who see wind and
solar energy as key to breaking the grip that oil holds on our econo-
my.
On National Public Radio's "Science Friday" show, Republican
Sen. John Warner (R-Va.), a senior member of the GOP legislative
brain trust, lamented the missteps since former President Jimmy
Carter's call for energy independence three decades earlier.
Asked if Carter had been right, Wamer didn't hesitate: "Yes."
Unless some brave Republican senators break ranks with Senate
Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, it looks like Congress could
squander yet another chance to renew those alternative energy cred-
its.
In the meantime, expect to hear a lot more loud chants of "drill,
drill, drill" coming from the oil chorus on the banks of the Potomac.

Fisheries Council getting heat

Sometime this fall in Charleston, S.C. federal fisheries regulations
will get their final vote up or down by the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council.
As detailed in today's Keynoter, some missteps and misunderstand-
ings about a possible seven-month ban on fishing for all grouper
species has Keys charter captains up in arms.
The original intent of the proposed rule is to protect gag grouper
from over-fishing. But few gag grouper are found in Keys waters
where red grouper and black grouper are a popular sport fishery that
drives recreational tourism.
Keys fishermen are hoping the Council will consider creating a
separate management area for the Keys.
Absent that, warns Islamorada captain Bill Kelly, "this would stran-
gle us."

TraumaStar is always there, and safety is always


EDITOR:
I hold the position of chief pilot at TraumaStar.
My life as a pilot began on a rural grass field air-
port in Maryland, where I learned to fly in J3
Cubs and a plethora of small Cessnas and Pipers.
What drew me to the flying field between classes
was a strong love of being aloft and a desire to
join the ranks of the commercial airline pilots.
I flew for Braniff and US Airways. As my
retirement approached, I would often ponder my
next flying opportunity. The fortunes and turmoil
of the airline industry were easing my decision to
leave early and return to a past passion, helicop-
ter flying. Much work was in order, however.
Getting current in helicopters once again and
becoming rated as an airline transport pilot and
instructor pilot in rotorcraft took a year and many
dollars to accomplish. Having been an instructor
pilot, a check airman and a management pilot, I
had high ideals of how a safe aviation department
functions. Safety is paramount in any flying oper-
ation.
Compliance disposition, a company's desire to
provide for and administer to the regulations and
safe procedures, is the bedrock to maintaining a
zero accident goal. In the air ambulance business,
training compliance disposition is a must.
Happily, I was offered a position at
TraumaStar. This offer came only after flying
with our check airman, Jack Leopold, and in turn
each of our base pilots to assess my abilities (our
pilots average 10,200 hours each of military and
civil aviation experience). I then attended at the
Flight Safety school and passed check rides with
our director of flight ops and a Flight Safety


check airman. Even to this day, my baptism is
ongoing.
In the flying business, we play "bet your job"
at six-month intervals, with Federal Aviation
Administration-mandated medical and flight
checks. Prior to operating in and out of our land-
ing zones, we complete FAA-mandated line
checks. We have zero accidents or incidents.
I have been blessed to work with so.many fine
pilots, medical crewmembers, mechanics and
support staff. Most of us are residents of the Keys
dedicated to the citizens of Monroe County. We
don't have a-trailer hitch attached to our opera-
tion and we will be there to support you in your
time of need, now and hopefully in the future.
When you call, we are there without first check-
ing your insurance credentials.
Our response time is generally within 20 min-
utes of a landing zone near you. You are then
transported to a Level 1 trauma facility in Miami
at 140 knots while in the care of our medical
staff, long-time employees of our fire rescue
folks who have hugely impressive credentials.
We are available 24/7 from our Marathon facility
and, yes, we have been available at least 46 times
when a private company couldn't or wouldn't.
TraumaStar will soon be asked for a vote of
confidence through a voter referendum. We
would ask that in deciding between your home-
town operation and a portable one, you cQnsider
such a small price per family for such a potential-
ly huge return on your investment.

Commissioners make play-by-play easy


EDITOR:
How disingenuous. I was sitting here at home
watching the Monroe County Commission budg-
et meeting'on TV. Mayor Mario Di Gennaro says
to Sheriff Rick Roth he's sorry the deputies aren't
getting any more money this year.
Too bad Mario didn't think about that before
he forced the Vandenberg artificial-reef folly
down the county taxpayers' throats. Too bad he
ignored staff's advice and the public's comments
that the county could not afford the Vandenberg
folly.
And now Mario sits in the middle of the dais
again (how did that happen?) and debates
whether it's really been one year or two years
since deputies received pay increases.
Now Mario says to Growth Management
Director Drew Trivette that he strongly believes
we have obligation to cut costs. Cut costs or we
have to raise taxes. Again, how disingenuous.
Mere hollow words, until Mario admits that he's
responsible for some of the county's financial
problems because of decisions he has made, and
he gets the county out of its obligation to the
Vandy.
Overall, the budget conversations seem to be
two-dimensional, limited to two choices. Either
cut citizens' services or raise taxes.
There is a third option. The entire county pay-
roll (excluding that which is union negotiated)
should also be decreased. One method is sliding


scale the higher the salary, the higher the
reduction percentage. Another method is the
county operates only four days a week and every-
body takes a flat 20 percent salary cut, which is
frequently done by businesses with financial
problems.
Note: The ultimate irony is that if certain pre-
viously proposed budget proposals are passed,
TV broadcasting of all County Commission
meetings would be eliminated.

Heroes rescue diver, remain anonymous


EDITOR:
Thanks to the two good unnamed
samaritans who assisted in life-giv-
ing CPR on my dive boat, the Coral
Princess I on Sunday, July 27. They
came from another boat when they
heard a diver on my boat needed
CPR.-They were EMTs.
I was unable to get their names as
the diver had been transferred to .
another boat, operated by Tow Boat


USA, with them accompanying her
to the dock to continue trying to
revive her. We need more people like
these guys. Sorry I couldn't have met
you.
I would also like to thank

Golf carts are the answer


EDITOR:
The BOCC, or whoever is in
charge of this island (a fact I have
never been able to find out in 30
years of living here) should consider
allowing golf carts on our bike paths.
The reasons are obvious. The
locals that live here could go to and
from work, to the stores, on errands,
etc and not burn expensive fuel, sav-
ing each resident thousands of dol-
lars.


Seems simple to me:. put lights on
the carts, brake lights, and license
them, which would bring revenue to
the island. Impose a 15 mph speed
limit, and draw a center line down
the middle of the bike path. Done
deal. Simple and beneficial.
How about it county commission-
ers, get behind this and help the citi-
zens of Key Largo.

Community shares Marine Corps


League award
EDITOR:
. The award I recently received
through the Marine Corps League for
helping overseas soldiers does not
only belong to me, but to this whole
community.
Without the support of everyone
in this community such as Thomes &
Thomes, Hawke Associates, the
group in the Long Key Trailer Park,
two local Brownie troops, the
Appliance Doctor, members of the
local service clubs and all those who
knitted, donated, baked, paid for
shipping and contents of care pack-
ages etc., the work I do would not be
possible.
I am only the instrument through
which the outstanding support of our
Marines/troops and wounded receive
from this community. It was an
honor this entire community should
take pride in.
I want to thank everyone who
helped and those who are still sup-
porting this work. All of us are tired
of this war it is hard to keep
showing support but it is even more
important now when so many of our
military are on their third, fourth,
fifth or sixth tour of the war zone.
I'm still active in my endeavors.
I am collecting phone cards for
Landstuhl Medical Center in
Germany, where 400 to 600 of the
wounded are airlifted from
Afghanistan and Iraq monthly. I am
also collecting, through Nov. 1,


handmade crib quilts and afghans
(red, white and blue or patriotic, if
possible but not necessary) that will
be going to toddlers, babies and
expectant moms whose partners are
deployed. They can be dropped off at
the American Legion, Veterans of
Foreign Wars or given to me directly.
Care packages are still being sent
to Iraq and Afghanistan. It is not easy
to keep up the momentum, but they
do need our support now more than
ever. There are many ways you can
continue support.
It costs $12 to ship a care package
and about $40 to fill one. Forgotten
Soldiers has boxes around town. You
can put in items such as tuna in
pouches, boxes of individually
wrapped cookies, foot powder, foot
fungus cream, individual Propel
packets, etc. You can help me with
phone cards for our wounded or
make crib blankets for our sacrificing
families or pay for shipping of boxes
through me. You can donate the cost
of filling a box and I'll do the shop-
ping for you.
Again, thank you to this commu-
nity for making it possible for me to
continue to show support to those
who volunteered to serve our great
country. The award belongs to all of
you. I thank you on behalf of those
we support. You should all be very
proud.

Bonhomie in short


supply at forum


This election season has already become
something of a watershed in the Keys with
more candidates for more seats contested
than anyone can remember.
And participating in Hometown PAC's
Wednesday night forum really drove that
home for this political observer.
The crowd was animated, 'the questions
were coming fast and furious, and the candi-
dates even delivered a few surprises.
Asked if the debate produced any news,
I'd have to say "not really." But there were
some surprising "admissions."
County Commissioner Sonny McCoy
appeared to back away from his previous
staunch support of former county adminis-
trator Tom Willi.
"His term was about up,"
McCoy said, when asked what
went wrong.
County Commissioner Dixie
Spehar was even more up front,
reminding the audience that
she's the one who pushed to ter-
minate Willi's contract, even if
that meant paying him to go
away.
Reminding the audience
about past acts proved a two-
edged sword, however, as U.S. 1 hi
Radio's News Director Bill i
Becker asked Spehar to explain
why she voted against fellow Wayne
commissioner George Neugent's Keynote
nominee for Planning
Commission two years ago.*
For those of you who forget, Neugent's
nominee then was Stock Island resident
Kim Wigington, who just happened to be
seated next to Spehar at Wednesday's forum
- Wigington is running against Spehar for
the second time.
Talk about an awkward moment.
Actually it became more than a moment as
both Spehar and Wigington traded verbal
blows over what happened and why.
Suffice it to say that Wigington demon-
strated she's been on a fast learning curve
since her last run for this office four years
ago and against the same incumbent.
Another surprise came when all three
county commission candidates were pressed
about their support for continuing state
oversight of the Keys as an Area of Critical
Concern.
McCoy, responding to questions on
Hometown PAC's Web site, linked his time
as Key West mayor and moving forward on
sewers with ending state oversight of the
city.
Asked at the forum if he would support
ending state oversight when Monroe County
completes its sewer projects, McCoy backed
off any timetable. He said he wasn't sure
when the county would be able to leave
Critical Concern status.
Wigington was already on record as a


staunch supporter of oversight, citing state
funding that comes with Critical Concern
status: "I do not believe we would have
received the state's promise of $200 million
bonded for wastewater projects if we were
not an Area of Critical State Concern."
Spehar also weighed in with stronger
support for Critical Concern than she's pre-
viously expressed. Asked a followup ques-
tion to clarify if the county might someday
be dedesignated, Spehar said she didn't see
that day happening.
Monroe County Mario Di Gennaro was
in the back of the room, taking all this in
and watching candidates run through their
paces.
Republican candidates for Sheriff, Ken
Davis and Phil Mandina,
engaged in a mostly civil dis-
course, hardly a debate. Both
presented their ideas on big-,
ticket expenses they would cut
if elected Sheriff.
One issue the two did dis-
f agree about: the need to create
a Citizen Review Board to hear
complaints about Sheriff's
department actions. Davis
doesn't think it's needed now;
Mandina thinks it couldn't hurt
so why not have one.
District 3 School Board
larkham incumbent Duncan Mathewson
Publisher showed up for the forum as
promised, but his opponent,
Matt Cochran, was a no-show.
Ditto for McCoy's GOP rival Carlos Rojas.
All five candidates running for Circuit
Court judge got the same opportunity near
the end of the forum. -Manny Madruga
thanked those still left in the room for stick-
ing it out through the "under-card."
Candidates running for Mosquito Control
Board closed the session. Key West's Joan
Lord Papy said she was used to waiting,
having spent so many years on the
Mosquito board waiting to improve equip-
ment and facilities.
Her challenger Chris Zuelch talked about
the need for fiscal oversight and less spend-
ing. And he tried out his campaign slogan
about Mosquito Control needing. "new
blood..."
Andy Willianms talked about his arrest
record, which may be a first for a political
candidate before being elected.
There will be other candidate forums, of
course, including one sponsored by the
Keynoter, The Reporter, and Keys Sunday.
That funfest will be live 6-8 p.m. Aug. 14 at
the Marathon Government Center.
In addition to the six GOP candidates
running for three county commission seats,
we'll have the School Board race, all five
judicial candidates, four running for District
1 seat on the Mosquito board, plus the
GOP Sheriff candidates Davis and Mandina.

Hotel will get
exemption from
housing setaside
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Holiday Inn & Marina in
Marathon will be the first to
take advantage of a recent City
Council decision easing afford-
able housing requirements for
redeveloping smaller and mid-
size hotels.
Spottswood Companies, Inc.
plans to demolish all buildings
on the site, near mile marker 54
oceanside, and convert the hotel
to a Holiday Inn Express. The
company is bringing its redevel-
opment plans before the
Planning Commission on Aug.
18.
Planning Director George
Garrett had suggested to the
council at a July 22 meeting.that
smaller hotels were having trou-
ble redeveloping because of a
rule requiring a 20 percent
affordable housing contribution.
"If you look at the section of


the code specific to hotels and
motels, that contemplates the
ability of council to adjust the
affordable housing requirement
based on economic condition,"
Garrett said, adding that sacri-
ficing so many rooms to afford-
able housing was pricing many
hoteliers out of redevelopment.
The council directed him at
the meeting to bring forward a
resolution adjusting the require-
ment. He said it will likely be
heard at the Aug. 12 regular
meeting.
"The -intent of the ordi-
nance...was in recognition of
these developments that were
essentially eliminating afford-
able housing and moving those
units onto their site and turning
them into larger condo units,"
Garrett said.
The abandoned Marlin Bay
property, for instance, sits on the
former site of the Gulfstream
Trailer Park. The sale of the
park led to a legal battle over the
eviction of 90 mobile-home
owners in 2003. They were
finally forced to leave in July


'This ws the
one that fits
the model
best.'
- George Garrett
Planning Director


2004.
The "council indicated it was
not their intent to preclude a
hotel like Holiday Inn from
redeveloping in kind," Garrett
said.
Garrett's suggestion was that
smaller hotels redeveloping in
the same basic footprint and
with the same amenities be
exempt from the affordable
requirement.
"This was the one that fits the
model best for sure," he said of
the Holiday Inn project. "All
they were asking to do is'rebuild
what they had."

could not be reached for com-
ment.

New medical examiner on his way south


Former #2 in
Jacksonville
replacing Hunt
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The newly-named interim
medical examiner for Monroe
County says he doesn't foresee
jumping in and making major
changes when he takes the
reigns on Sept. 1. Instead, Dr. E.
Hunt Scheuerman says he is
looking forward to getting to
know the players.
"Professionally, Dr. Hunter
did such a great job,"
Scheuerman said of his prede-
cessor in a phone interview
Thursday, "I don't think there's
a whole lot I plan on changing."
A 20-member search com-
mittee comprised of local law
enforcement representatives as
well as members of the state's
forensic community and Florida
government on Monday tagged
Scheuerman to replace Michael
Hunter. Hunter, who has served
as the Keys' medical examiner
since 2002, has accepted a posi-


.. CO UN T0]


Scheuerman


tion in the Florida Panhandle.
"I've toured the office and
met and conversed at length
with Dr. Hunter," said
Scheuerman. "My first order of
business, when I'm not busy in
the office, is to get into the com-
munity and meet the folks I'll be
dealing with."
Scheuerman, age 60, will
serve in an interim capacity,
according to state law, until his


nomination has been approved
by the Florida Medical
Examiners Commission and
Gov. Charlie Crist.
Scheuerman's extensive
experience includes stints as
associate and chief medical
examiner in Florida, Alabama,
Tennessee and Louisiana. He
served in the Air Force, has
worked as an emergency med-
ical physician and taught exten-
sively. In fact, teaching is some-
thing that he hopes he'll be able
to work into his time in the
Keys.
"The workload will be lighter
as far as total numbers," he said,
comparing the Keys to his cur-
rent position as associate med-
ical examiner in Jacksonville.
"That gives me the opportunity
to see that each case is properly
handled and complete, and it
gives me time for community
teaching."
He says both he and his wife
Alesha are looking forward to
the small-town atmosphere of
the Keys.
"That small town USA
appeals to both my wife and I,"
he said. "I've lived in small
towns or the outskirts of larger


ones most of my life. We're
looking forward to becoming
members of this new community
and, hopefully, we will become
locals."
Scheuerman will be walking
into a newly-completed medical
examiner's facility in the Middle
Keys, a building he calls "beau-
tiful." He credits his predecessor
with appointing the $4 million
facility with state-of-the-art


tools.
"The esteem I recognize in
people's voices, when I talk to
the community, all tell me Dr.
Hunter did a superb job. I want
to continue that good work."
Scheuerman was one of two
candidates culled from a nation-
wide search spearheaded by
Catherine Vogel, chief assistant
state attorney for Monroe
County.

-baby loggerhead turtles this
week. More than 70 hatched on
Key Colony Beach on Thursday
night, and were helped to shore
by staff from the city's building
department. Between Sunday
and Monday, 99 turtles hatched
at Fort Zachary Taylor Park in
Key West. It was the first time
since 2003 the turtles had
hatched on the beach at Fort
Zach.
More than 50 people, includ-
ing the mayor, gathered on the
beach at Sea Isle Condominiums
on Key Colony Beach on
Thursday night to watch the lit-
tle turtles make their way to the
ocean. A beach walker had
noticed the tracks of the mother
turtle in the sand about a month
ago and alerted the staff at the
city's building department. The
eggs were collected from the
nest, and, after hatching, the tur-
tles were put back in the original
nest and released on Thursday
night. A culvert was dug from
the nest to the ocean, and the tur-
tles made the voyage one by one
whife more than 50 people,
including a number of residents
of Sea Isle Condominiums,


stood by and cheered.
Volunteers picking up litter
on the beach at Fort Zachary
Taylor Park at about 8:30 a.m.
*on Sunday saw the first hatch-
lings struggling to reach the
water and alerted park man-
agers. On Sunday night, more
turtles began emerging from
eggs. Fort Zach park officials
reported that some of the hatch-
lings were disoriented by lights
from the nearby U.S. Navy prop-
erty and began heading that way.
Park staff helped guide them
toward the water.
The rest of the baby turtles
hatched and made their way to
the water on Monday night. Park
staff counted a total of 99 eggs
that hatched. Seven loggerhead
hatchlings were still-born and
four eggs did not hatch at all.
This was the first successful
turtle hatching at the park since
2003. In 2005, the park had four
crawls, where female turtles laid
eggs on the beach. But all of the
nests were destroyed during
Hurricane Rita as it passed by
Key West.
Park Services Specialist
Harry Smid said they're not sure
why female loggerhead turtles
decided to come back to Fort
Taylor park this year.
"We'd like to attribute it to
our new sand," he said. "But I
don't even know if that's true."
New sand was brought to the
park late last year as part 'of a
beach renourishment project.

Girls program needs

$68,000 to survive


Program director
says cutting will
cost county later
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

While county staff is looking.
for ways to pare more dollars
off the -proposed property taxes
for the coming year, one small
agency is crossing its fingers
with the hope that $68,000 will
be added back into the budget.
"That funding is for the
counselors," says Dixie
Humelsine, chairwoman of the
Keys Center for Girls Board of
Directors. "And the counseling
is what makes this program
unique."
The former PACE Center for
girls has been in crisis mode
since April when cuts at the
state level forced the parent
agency to shut down the Keys
branches. Local directors
jumped in, begging space and
funding to finish out the school
year for the 30-plus girls in the
program and they were suc-
cessful. Florida Keys
Community College offered
free class space. The Monroe
County School District provid-
ed teachers. As a result, 11 girls
graduated who otherwise might
have dropped out rather than try
and integrate back into Key
West High School for the
remaining school .year.
The School District and the
community college have
stepped up to the plate for the
coming school year with teach-
ers and space. But the Keys
Center for Girls needs to find
money to pay for counselors -
two in Key West and one each in


the Marathon and Key Largo
satellite offices.
On July 28 the County
Commission set a tentative 2009
village rate that is nearly 10
percent over rollback the
millage rate necessary to raise
the same amount of dollars as
the previous year. That high
budget did not include the
$68,000 requested by the Keys.
Center for Girls.
Diana Reagan, the program's
director, pleaded to have the
money put back in the budget.
"This is the only prevention
program for at-risk girls in the
entire county," she said. "It will
end up costing now or costing
later because these girls can
show up in the juvenile justice
center if this prevention isn't
provided."
County Administrator
Roman Gastesi said he would
try and find a way to work it
back in.
"If we're able to make a cut
somewhere else and recognize a
savings, we can do that,"
Budget Director Tina Boan told
the Keynoter. "But we can't
increase the budget. We want to
do anything we can for them,-
though."
Though $68,000 isn't a lot of
money, Reagan says it leverages
a lot more by providing a local
match. Often state and federal
grant programs require local
funding before granting double
and sometimes triple that initial
amount.
"This first full year is so crit-
ical," said Humelsine.. "If we
don't scrape together the fund-
ing this year, there is no next
year."

Escapee found at the Oriole


Key Wester goes
to drinking hole
instead, of jail
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Key West resident Tina
Halefrancis apparently decided
to go to a bar instead of return-
ing to prison early Thursday
after a work release shift at a
local restaurant.
The 39-year-old was sched-
uled to return to the Monroe
County Detention Center at 1:45
a.m., but never returned to the
jail. Key West police officers
found her visibly intoxicated at
the Oriole Club on the corner of
Front and Simonton streets at
12:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Becky Herrin said an
anonymous tip to a work-release
specialist at the jail led police to
the bar. The bar's owner
declined to comment for this
story.
"She tested .20 blood alcohol
and had signs of a couple other
drugs in her system when we got
her back," Herrin said.


I Halefrancis
was charged
with a felony
,- count of
escape and
was returned
to the jail.
Halefrancis
was booked
Halefrancis on May 4
after being
arrested for violation of proba-
tion on a previous arrest for
felony cocaine possession.
"She was scheduled to be
released in November on her
probation charges, but now she
faces up to five years in prison,"
Herrin said.
The work-release program
allows low-risk inmates the
opportunity to work while serv-
ing sentences. The money can be
used to compensate victims,
support family or goes into their
jail canteen account, according
to Herrin.
Halefrancis has been arrested
four times in Key West in the
past 20 months, but a search of
her arrest record on the Sheriff's
Office Web site lists an address
in Palm Bay, near Melbourne.
She lists her occupation as con-
struction.

Islamorada residents

work to save fireworks


Businesses
raising money for
public display
BY DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

For the first time in years,
there were no fireworks above
Founders Park in Islamorada on
the Fourth of July. The village
council cut the fireworks display
this year, which cost about
$20,000, to help meet state-
imposed budget reductions.
Residents of Islamorada are now
trying to bring back the fireworks
by raising the funds themselves.
At last Thursday's village
council meeting, restaurant
owner and former village mayor
Mike Forster said he and charter
captain Skip Bradeen are engag-


ing local businesses to raise the
necessary funds.
"As far as the insurance and
the fireworks, I think we can
raise enough money for that,"
Forster said, asking the village
council for help with "fixed
costs" like police crowd control
and emergency medical services,
and to include these in the 2008-
2009 budget.
Forster said his group would
be forming a nonprofit organiza-
tion to work with village parks
and recreation officials to admin-
ister the fireworks.
"I already told you I'd support
it with my business, and I encour-
age other businesses to pitch in,"
Councilman Michael Reckwerdt
said. "This is an example of how
businesses in the community
help."

A plan to keep Pigeon Key


Foundation
launches
campaign
By RYAN McCARTHY
.rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The tight credit market and
sky-high fuel prices are forcing
the Pigeon Key Foundation to
search for alternative revenue
sources this summer.
Foundation Executive
Director Jess Shows said the
island, which is powered exclu-
sively by diesel generators,

racked up fuel bills of over
$7,000 per month during the
peak months of May and June.
"Right now things are real
lean, and diesel for us, with the
generators, is over $4 a gallon,"
Shows said.
Shows has launched a capital
campaign and membership drive
aimed at raising money to help
the historic island offshore of
Marathon make it through the
off-season. The goal is to raise
$100,000 by the end of the year
through membership purchases
and donations.
The foundation is offering
numerous membership specials
including a Pass For Life, which
for $500 buys two overnight
stays on the island, lifetime pass-
es to the Pigeon Key Art and
Pirate Days festivals and unlim-
ited access to the island.
Reduced price annual member-
ships for individuals and fami-
lies are also being offered. The
memberships sales run through
Aug. 15, and Shows said there
has been a positive community
response.
"It's generating a lot of rev-
enue aside from the $500
checks. People are talking about
it and picking up the phone and
calling," he said.
Shows said the foundation's
inability to secure a line of cred-
it this year has put the island in a
bind financially.
"The banks are tightening
their belts-with everything going
on in the economy. That's put us
in a situation where we have to
say, 'What are we going to do?'"
Shows said. "We have a plan in
place to get us through
December and then we'll be fine
because we have other revenue
sources."
From February through July,
the Pigeon Key Marine Science
Center hosts numerous student
groups and designs educational
programs specifically to meet
their needs. Shows said the foun-
dation had a banner financial
year with the programs, hosting
1,015 overnight guests for a total
of 3,026 nights.
"We more than doubled in
2008 from 2007," he said,
adding that another 35 percent to
40 percent increase is expected
next year.
But another problem facing
the foundation is a delay on
needed repairs to the 2.2-mile


Jess Shows, the executive
director of the Pigeon Key
Foundation, came up with" a
plan to get the island through
the slow season and pay big
diesel bills. The plan includes
selling two-night overnight
stays on the island for $500.

Old Seven Mile Bridge leading
out to the island. The bridge was
closed to vehicular traffic March
4. The repair project is slated to
cost $34 million, split between
the state Department of
Transportation and Monroe
County, but the county has been
unable to secure a state infra-
structure loan for the project.
The state included running
electric to Pigeon Key in its
request for construction propos-
als, which would be a boon to
Pigeon Key's finances.
"We wouldn't have a $7,000
a month electric bill, I can guar-
antee that," said Shows.
The bridge closure also cre-
ates transportation problems and
makes it difficult to hold wed-
dings and other events on the
island. Tour-goers and student
groups are taken over by a boat
that runs from the visitor center
to the island several times a day.
The state will fund that service,
provided by Paradise Divers,
under a contract with the county,
until June 30, 2010.
"After that, or whenever the
bridge construction begins, it
will be the responsibility of the
contractor," Shows said, adding
the foundation will be responsi-
ble for the ferry cost if no con-
struction is taking place.

Residents to
give input on
plan for U.S. 1
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS
AMENDED THE CITY OF LAYTON
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN


Florida Department of
Transportation officials are
holding another meeting
Tuesday on a controversial
project that includes adding an
evacuation lane on portions of
U.S. 1 in Key Largo.
DOT unveiled the plan earli-
er this year that calls for milling
and resurfacing of all of U.S. 1
from -mile marker 92 to 106,
along with drainage and signage
improvements and a new five-
foot shoulder on the southbound
lanes.
The plan also calls for a ten-
foot-wide paved-shoulder on the
northbound lanes that would be
used only for emergencies, such
as during traffic accidents, or
for hurricane evacuations.
Some residents of the Upper
Keys have criticized the plan as
adding a "fifth lane" to U.S. 1
that could encourage unsafe
passing and other negative
effects. A few have written let-
ters to Gov. Charlie Crist urging
him to stop the project.
"We're required to consider
numerous factors, including
public safety and emergency
evacuation routes," said DOT
spokesman Brian Rick. "To
Governor Crist, it's important
residents have a good hurricane
evacuation route. That has been
a priority."
The first section of the proj-
ect, from mile marker 92 to 93,
is scheduled to begin in summer
2009, with the final section
from 103 to 106 beginning in
August 2010. DOT representa-
tives will be at the Aug. 5 meet-
ing at the Holiday Inn in Key
Largo to listen to residents' con-
cerns. The meeting is from 5:30
to 7:30 p.m. To confirm atten-
dance, contact DOT public
information specialist Marta
Rodriguez at (305) 470-5873.

$1.5 million to help 150 women each year


Federal grant
makes rehab
program possible
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Shantel Scott got what every-
body needs at some point in life
- a break.
"I was in Marathon selling
drugs smoking drugs and I
ended up catching a charge,"
Scott told the Keynoter. "The.
judge sentenced me to the pro-
gram, and it's. the best thing that
ever happened to me."
"The program" is Women in
Transition, which partners with
Samuel's House, Inc., the Care
Center for Mental Health and the
women's in-house substance
abuse program at the Monroe
County Detention Center. It was
born from a $1.5 million federal
grant from the Substance Abuse
and Mental Health Services
Administration.
"This grant will affect 150
women a year for the next three
years," said Jane Cruz, deputy
director of Samuel's House in
Key West and the Women in
Transition project coordinator.
"Eventually we hope to reach
450 women with substance abuse
and mental health co-occurring
disorders."
Already, she says, 55 women


are in the program.
Several, like Scott, have
already graduated.
"At first I was resistant,"
Scott says. "Then everything
started happening good. I went to
[narcotics anonymous] meetings
and group and one-on-one doun-
seling. I found I was ready to
change."
Scott started the program in
jail. When she left there, she
spent 90 days at Samuel's House.
Now she's a resident of Kathy's
Hope, the third leg in her "con-
tinuum of care" where she finds
the structure and support to stay
clean.
"It's lovely," she says. "I
wouldn't be anywhere else right
now. It's a strong support group."
Scott, 35, is working at Waffle
House and attending classes at
Florida Keys Community
College where she's working on
a degree in business. Her sched-

gram through any of the partner
programs," said Cruz. While
many begin the process at the
jail, it's just as easy for them to
begin the transition to wellness at
the Care Center or at Samuel's
House. -
"This grant helps us provide a
continuum of care we have been
unable to provide since Safeport
folded," said Cruz. "We can pro-
vide services for up to a year,
which has never .been possible.
Many of these women are home-
less, and even when they get on
their feet, they need continued
support."
Safeport was a year-long resi-


dential program that allowed
people to get their lives back
together by working in the com-
munity while living in a struc-
tured, drug-free environment.
That Key West-based "program
was the victim of budget cuts
several years ago.


Shantel Scott is confident in
her future, thanks to the sup-
port of the Women in
Transition program that helps
those with substance abuse
and mental health issues get
back on their feet.

Commission candidates:


get control of spending


Challenger says
look to'opening
of Cuba for help
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

At a forum in Tavernier on
Tuesday, candidates for Monroe
County Commission suggested
moving some employees to a
four-day workweek and freezing
salaries as a way to address
budget shortfalls. One chal-
lenger, Sloan Bashinsky, sug-
gested looking to the opening of
Cuba for budget help.
"We've got to make this con-
nection with Cuba...and stop
spending the money on projects
you really can't afford,"
Bashinsky said.
At Tuesday's gathering, host-
ed by the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce and the Florida Keys
Board of Realtors, many candi-
dates criticized the county com-
mission's recent approval of an
initial 2008-09 budget that's
more than 18 percent higher
than this year's.
Candidates for Districts 1, 3
and 5 all talked about ways to
trim the budget, including inves-
tigating moving some county
staffers to a four-day work week
and re-examining the contract
for the TraumaStar emergency
medical helicopter.
Three candidates were
absent: District 3 incumbent
Sonny McCoy; District 5 incum-
bent Silvia Murphy; and District
5 challenger Sal Gutierrez.
District 3 challenger Sloan
Bashinsky opened by encourag-
ing voters to elect opponent
Heather Carruthers. He then
talked about cutting back some
of the county's contracts and
looking to the opening of Cuba
as a possible economic engine.
Carruthers said the county
should pare down its number of
properties, rework benefits
packages to employees and try
to build back reserve funds.
"We can't even get through
three months if we have a hurri-
cane," she said. "The [county
commission] voted to increase
taxes at least 10 percent...and
also approved a $10 million line
of credit. Clearly we need to get


spending under control."
Fellow District 3 candidate
Carlos Rojas spoke about cut-
ting staff from the top down,
focusing on salaries greater than
$100,000, as well as cutting
back on staff size during sum-
mer months.
"We are a seasonal communi-
ty, and perhaps our government
can mimic that," he said. "And
instead of building more build-
ings, we could lease [office]
space. In a good year, we could
lease more...and in a down econ-
omy, we could close some."
Gary Bauman, the only
District 5 candidate present,
agreed with the need to down-
size government, specifically in
the public works and growth
management divisions.
"We could outsource projects
to local contractors and move
from the public sector to the pri-
vate sector," he said. "Out of
that $35 million in public works,
that could save a significant
amount of money."
District 1 candidate Bill Estes
said he wants to cut back spend-
ing "to the bone," and institute a
24-month pay freeze for all non-
union employees.
"We need to cut back on the
number of consultants we use,"
he said. "If you're taking your
car home and you work in the
county, you better be getting
calls at midnight or you should-
n't be taking the car home."
District 1 incumbent Dixie
Spehar said the county must
maintain its services at basic
levels and defended the budget
approved by the commission.
"I'm asking the [county]
administrator to bring to the
commission any change to the
budget we approve," she said.
"We are talking to the unions
and they have agreed to not take
[pay] increases across the board.
We have reduced our employees
to the bare bones."
District 1 challenger Kim
Wigington repeated a need for a
three- to five-year fiscal plan to
recover from years of mis-
spending.
"County spending is basical-
ly on a crisis mentality," she
said. "We need to start the
process in January and get the


public involved. This is a rare
opportunity to reset our priori-
ties."

the money customers were
donating was going to cover
marketing and administra-

By a unanimous vote, the
Public Service Commission
ended FPL's Sunshine
Energy Programi in which
39,000 customers voluntari-
ly added $9.75 to their
monthly electric bills so that
FPL could purchase renew-
able energy.
FPL had contracted with
a Texas company, Green
Mountain Energy, to run the
program. PSC staff have
been trying for months to
find out where the money
went, but all it could learn
was that just 24 percent of
the total collected was going
to purchase renewable ener-
gy.
Commissioner Nathan
Skop, who had once worked
for an FPL sister company
promoting renewables, said
about $9 million in cus-
tomers' money had gone
"into a black hole where
there is no transparency."

Necessity breeds
invention on a
mountain trip
By ERIN EHRLICH

Sandra Bleser and her hus-
band were in the mountains in
North Carolina when they real-
ized the beds were too high and
the floors too hard for their baby
girl to comfortably and safely
play on.
So they bought an inflatable
pool from the local drugstore,
stuck some rugs underneath it
and. put a pillow inside of it.
There, the idea for an inflatable
play yard was born.
Launched in the Upper Keys
in December 2007, Growing
Room Inc. develops and sells the


Room to Grow 4-in-1 Inflatable
Play Yard, which recently won
the Top Choice 2008 for Play
Yards by Creative Child maga-
zine.
Bleser said it's the portable
solution to many baby problems,
as it can be used as a changing
table, play pen, sleeping area
and splash pool.
"We've had a great
response," she said. "An on-the-
go family can travel easily with
this, and it's built with a lot of
safety features because chil-
dren's products need to have a
lot of protection. Safety was one
of our first concerns."
Bleser said she hopes the
company can eventually expand
and become a nationally-known
product. '
"We want to go forward," she


said. "We're gro
but we're a very
ny."
Growing Roon
a pitch on MSN]
and the television
class at Coral
School put tog
minute advertised
marketing.
The product
$134.99 and is
shops like Baby
Edge Gift Cottal
Cargo.
"It's not just a
able," Bleser said
easy to clean, easy
fit in your car or
closet and it'll tr

Good company
and clear skies on
the way to islands
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Suppose the captain
always says at the start
what a glorious day it is,
and how it's the best he's ever
seen. But on the day I made my
first trip out to the Dry Tortugas,
he didn't have to bluff about it.
Aside from about 15 raindrops
falling on our heads just before
we passed the Marquesas, it was
a day without peer, and the Gulf
lay before us sparkling in the
sun like a plate of diamonds.
We parked in the Key West
city lot at about 7 a.m. and
walked over to the bottom of
Margaret Street, where
Hemingway used to swim with
friends in the afternoon in the
late '20s and '30s. My friend
bought tickets at the window.
The locals price is $99 per per-
son, but with a fuel surcharge,
the total for two of us was $223.
I stood against a wooden out-
building at the foot of the pier
and read the copy of the New
York Post I'd just picked iup
along with my Cuban coffee at
Five Brothers while watching
the variety of people congregat-
ing near us.
After a time, we started walk-
ing down the pier toward the
Yankee Freedom H, a double-
decker catamaran tied up at the
end. A trail of people followed
along behind us, and we all fell
into a line at the steps leading up
to the boat.
A boat trip is about expecta-
tion, about waiting and watching
and listening, and wondering
what lies ahead, wondering what
you might see out on the open
water and under it, and who you
might meet along the way. We
were quiet at the start of this trip
- everyone was primed,
maybe, for clues of what lay
ahead.
Our guide, Rick, went over
some rules before letting us
board. Smoking is allowed only
on the first level, in back.
Deposit butts in receptacles. We
were the second group on board,
and found ourselves in a cabin
lined with booths and tables and
a low ceiling. After a moment's
hesitation (reserve a booth for


ourselves or no?) we kept going,
out the back, and up the stairs to
the deck. After a week spent in
an office behind desks, we want-
ed no part of inside living.
The Yankee Freedom II was
built just to make this trip, from
Key West to the Dry Tortugas
and back. The boat is owned by
the brother and sister-in-law of
Captain Rick, who first came
down to the Keys only for the
season, and then began staying
year round when business
picked up. Rick and his brother
grew up on the water as the sons
of a fisherman and then passen-
ger boat operator in Hampton
Beach, N.H.
-We weren't long on board
before a girl of about 19 in a
bikini top and bike shorts who'd
been standing nearby asked me
where I got my pants. She's
from Connecticut, formerly a
pre-med student at the
University of Connecticut, now
leaning towards alternative med-
icine (wants to open a yoga stu-
dio!) She was in Florida with her
brother, her father (the track
coach at the University of
Connecticut) and her mother, a
business owner. And so began
one of the most interesting
aspects of the trip the oppor-
tunity to meet and come to know
people you might not ordinarily
encounter in the Keys. The
blond man and woman sitting on
the bench across from us were
from Denmark, and at the tail
end of an American tour that
took them through the western
states and would take them up to
Miami Beach on Monday. A
man from Tampa, a computer
tech, was there with his boy,
who stuck close to his father's
side the whole day, peering up at
adults with big brown eyes.
A breakfast buffet was served
on the boat cold cereal, cof-
fee, bagels with cream cheese
packets and as we neared the
Tortugas, snorkel masks, tubes
and flippers were handed out on
the first level.
There are seven islands that
make up the Dry Tortugas the
most notable is Garden Key,
almost all of which is used up
for the massive Fort Jefferson.
The island chain is part of the
Dry Tortugas National Park. And
it is fitting that it is in federal
hands. Lying almost 70 miles
west of Key West, the island

Jefferson was built to ward off
the Spanish, whose power and
ambition in the early and mid
1800s was waning, but still wor-
risome to the young United
States. Cuban immigrant smug-
glers use the islands now as a
nice low-profile drop-off point.
The Park Service pays the

migrants in to Key West, where
they're driven up to Miami and

Miami relatives sometimes call
his home in Key West, asking if
their relatives have arrived yet.
We disembarked at Fort
Jefferson right around 10:15
a.m., giving us a good five hours
on the island to do whatever we
liked. We headed first into the
fort, where we pawed at the
ground, looked out the windows,
and read up on the meaning of
the word 'bastion.' We caught up
with a tour group for about 10
minutes and then split and head-
ed over to the beach on the west
side of the island.
The feeling on the island was
unforgettable. Sound traveled
strangely, so that you could shout
out and your voice would float
across the water. It was maybe
because the red walls of the fort
rose up so abruptly from the
edge of the land, or because the
ocean waters lay so still. The best
snorkeling we found was on the
east side of the island, around the
boulders. I dove down into an

We were some of the last to

back to Key West, and I stared
long and longingly at the yellow

Bartenders and servers to battle on Sunday


Photos contributed
The battle will be hard fought on Sunday as teams from Key
West bars race with trays of drinks and change kegs at light-
ning speed.


As athletes from around
the world prepare for
the 2008 Olympic
Games, Key West's gold-medal
bartenders are training for their
own challenge.
The annual "Battle of the
Bars" takes place Sunday, Aug.
3 at Schooner Wharf Bar in Key
West. The torch will be lit at
high noon to signal the begin-
ning of the hard-fought battle
that pits bar against bar.
Over the course of the battle,
teams of seven members mix
and serve a margarita, tap a keg,
sort recyclables, and chug a beer
- competing for the fastest time.
But the Olympics would not
be the Olympics without some
controversy. So Schooner Wharf
allows teams to bribe the judges,
with all the bribe money going
to a good cause: the Boys and
Girls Club and Literacy
Volunteers of America.
Jake's Gigantic Conchs from
the Conch Republic Seafood
Company are hoping to trade in
their silver medal from last year
for a gold. "We do have a secret
weapon this year," team captain
Ali Ferguson said. "There might
even be some people coming out
of retirement to help take home
first place."
Teams can enter as late as the
morning of the battle, and spec-
tators can watch for free while
enjoying all-day drink specials
and the hijinks of local emcees


Bill Hoebee and "Magic" Frank
Everhart.
The "Battle" starts at noon


and lasts all day. Schooner
Wharf is at the foot of William
Street.


Review: "Queen of Bingo"


Marathon Community Theatre
5105 Overseas Highway
August 1 & 2 at 8 p.m.

By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com
Is bingo the answer to all
the world's problems? This
is the question that settles
into the mind when watching
Marathon Community Theatre's
summer reading of "Queen of
Bingo," written by Jeanne
Michels and Phyllis Murphy.
Sis (played by Alicia Merel)
is the sane bingo-playing sister.
Wellll...at least that's the way it
appears at the start of things.
She's first to arrive at bingo
night at St. Joe's Catholic Church
(where they don't let Catholics
win too much for fear the protes-


tants will think they're being par-
tial!), and proceeds to place in a
long line on the card table in
front of her all manner of small
stuffed animals and trinkets. It is
not until later when the spotlight
focuses our attention on Sis that
we realize that she may like
bingo a little too much. "The
night 1 won those two specials
back to back, 1 felt like I was
queen for a day," she says, after
letting it out that she's been going
to bingo every night of the week
- at the senior center, the Elks,
the Moose Lodge, Immaculate
Heart of Mary, the new Bingo
Palace, and every other venue in
town. And then there's Babe
(played by Annie Miners).
We know Babe has issues.
She comes in with a huff, in her
kaftan, and gets right to work


scoping out the room, fixing her
squinty-eyed gaze on the super-
sized woman who has taken their
regular seats, relegating them to a
table iii the hall. "Those seams
are doing the work of a yoke of
oxen," she says of the woman's
garments.
This is Annie Miners' first
acting gig. Her bio tells us she
worked behind the scenes in the
entertainment industry for years
before moving to Florida and
buying a boat. Alicia Merel is in
her third season with MCT, and
directed last year's "Cactus
Flower." Sitting next to one
another behind the card table at
bingo night, they are a superb
tragic-comic duo. Babe becomes
so wrought with emotion at
points that she climbs up on her
chair and bellows, and cowers


Babe (Annie Miners) and Sis (Alicia Merel) live to play bingo in
the Marathon Community Theatre's production of "Queen on
Bingo." The last show is tonight, Aug. 2 at 8 p.m.


under the table to avoid being
spotted by Coach Anderson, who
has asked her out. She's gained
weight and no longer fits into
anything but her housedress.
Intense bouts of bingo run


through it all, sometimes artfully.
"Under the I 1-25," says the
announcer. "I remember when I
was 25," says Babe. And that
starts her reminiscing, about the
time before her husband left her.

In case you need rousing from sleepy summer


The Golden Boys
are at La Te Da

How many ways can
they do Broadway,
those Golden Boys at
La Te Da? Well, they haven't
found the limit yet.
In the laidback beach town
that August creates, the gor-
geous guys with great voices
and truckloads of stage talent -
Bruce Moore and Bobby
Nesbitt have changed the
lights on the marquee again.
Thursday nights are for "The
Golden Boys Do Broadway," a
new format that shuffles the
tunes and even the players.
Guest stars are lined up for their
chance to bask in the glow of
the Golden Boys.
Aimed at the locals, the tick-
ets are an affordable $20
($28.50 if you can't claim local-
ity). As they say it, "It's nice to
be a local."
The shows started last month
and Moore says they've played
to packed houses. Key West
gal-about-town Lynda Frechette
was the first guest star. The
promo" photo for that one looked


like a fami-
ly photo of
three care-
free siblings
of an indul-
gent global
power a
trio of sunny
blondes with
s the glitter of
the Great
White Way
in their eyes.
Judi Bradford Stephanie
Leone,
daughter of local global power
Ed Swift and his wife Nancy,
sang with the Boys last week.
Moore says future guests
include the fiery hot Carmen
Rodriguez, Vanessa DiGennaro,
another "next-generationer" and
more.
Reports I've heard are enthu-
siastic and the music includes
elements from the golden duo's
previous hits: "Hooray for
Hollywood," "Bobby in the
Lobby," "Bruce Moore in
Broadway or Bust" and new
numbers from Broadway to
Hollywood, disco and pop.
Not just about voices and
Nesbitt's famous piano playing,
the shows work out the tap


shoes too and audiences may
also see some film clips from
the "heyday" era of Tinsel
Town; maybe even some
karaoke Golden Boy style.
This popular pastime takes
place at 9 p.m. on Thursdays in
La Te Da's Crystal Room, 1125
Duval St. For tickets or more
information, call 296-6706, ext.
10.

And the Red
Rooster Revue is
even Burlesquier!

The Key West Burlesque
troupe is back from their conti-
nental tour and are building
next season's shows with fresh
ideas generated by their travels.
There's a poolside tea party
at Alexander's, 1118 Fleming
on September 4 and a
Womenfest event at the
Southernmost Hotel on
September 6.
October is loaded with shows
and I'm hearing there will be a
Fantasy Fest parade float, too.
Four special productions are
on the schedule, starting in
December, ending with another
trip to Vegas next May.

Effort launched
to preserve her
'Secret Garden'
Nancy Forrester celebrated
her 70th birthday on July
29 and the City of Key
West proclaimed the day "Nancy
Forrester Day," in honor of her
many years of work planting and
caring for the extraordinary trop-
ical garden and rainforest on her
one-acre property in Old Town.
Forrester opened her Secret
Garden to the public in 1993.
Sitting in the middle of a high-
density neighborhood and sur-
rounded by 14 swimming pools,
the garden is now the last wood-
ed acre in Old Town Key West.
It is home to some of the oldest
trees in the city, and also has
tropical fruit and spice trees, a
collection of more than 100
species of rare palms, as well as
rare ferns, unusual aroids and
cycads. It will likely close this
fall, however, unless funds are
raised to save it. Not long ago,
Forrester announced that with
the advent of her 70th birthday,
she would no longer able to
meet the physically demanding
schedule that the garden
requires, and would no longer
able to continue as the garden's
sole benefactor.
A "qnvp thiQ C,-rri-n"


Fundraiser, supported by the
Trust for Public Land and Key
West's Mayor McPherson, was
launched by the nonprofit Mana
Project on July 1. The initial
goal of the first phase of the
campaign is to raise $160,000
for the current annual budget by
September 1. The campaign is
intended to sustain the garden's
present annual budget, with the
second phase geared toward
retiring unexpected obligations
and expenditures made to stabi-
lize the garden.
Tax-deductible donations can
be sent to Mana Project Inc.,
518 Elizabeth St., Key West, FL
33040. Supporters can also go
directly to www.manaproject
.org to make an online dona-
tion.
Nancy Forrester has been a
resident and visitor to the
Florida Keys for 59 years. She
attended 7th and 8th grades in a
one-room schoolhouse in
Marathon in 1958. When
Forrester bought the Key West
property in 1969, it was an aban-
doned lot, a dumping ground for
refuse and garbage. Now, the
garden holds an exotic plant and
rare palm collection found
nowhere else in the mainland of
the United States. It has been
singled out and lauded as a
must-see for visitors by travel
writers with the New York Times

ny began carrying a Zap Xebra
truck and Vectrix scooter
Wednesday, both of which are
totally electric.
"We're all feeling the crunch
of the oil crisis and the price of
fuel. You hear it every day on the
news and the exciting thing is
there are solutions already avail-
able to the problem," Meier
says.
The Xebra is actually a small
truck built on the frame of a
three-wheel motorcycle. It can
reach 40 mph and has a 25-mile
range, according to www.zap-
world.com. The Vectrix can trav-
el 60 mph and has a range
between 20 and 65 miles
depending on speed, according
to www.vectrix.com.
"We're in a great location
with a limited speed limit, so it's


perfect," says Meier.
Both vehicles can be charged
in any standard outlet and a solar
panel cover is available for the
Xebra truck bed to charge it
when not in use.
"It's total zero, not even fossil
fuel from the generators that
make electricity. That's pretty
exciting and we're in that realm
where that's doable," Meier said.
"Our top speed is 45 mph, so
you can commute all over
Marathon."
The truck will retail for
roughly $13,000 and the scooter
for $10,000.
Meier volunteered Sea Air
Land Technologies (SALT) to
become Marathon's official
electric car charging station this
past May after a meeting with
Charles Whalen, spokesman for
the Florida Electric Auto
Association. Meier was con-
vinced SALT should sell electric
vehicles after Whalen intro-
duced him to a dealer in West
Palm Beach.
SALT has been working with
alternative energy for more than
20 years, but mainly with boats
and houses.
"These will be the first-gener-
ation vehicles, but in two to

SALT will also be carrying an electric Vectrix scooter. The
scooter can go up to 62 mph, with a range of 20 to 65 miles
depending on speed.


The Xebra is powered by deep-cycle lead acid batteries.
Buyers also have the option to purchase a solar panel cover
for the truck bed to power the vehicle when not in use.

higher-end batteries that are
being developed right now,"
Meier said.
Whalen already has two
highway-speed electric vehicles
2002 Toyota Rav 4 EVs. He
brought one to the GLEE Expo
at Marathon High School while
+ touring the Keys in search of
charging station sponsors.
Whalen says the car can
reach 80 mph and has a range of
130 miles on the highway and
110 miles in the city. He and his
wife use the cars for all their
daily driving in Delray Beach
so much so that their Honda
Civic goes mostly unused.
"I haven't driven it in about
three months, the engine is
probably getting clumped up.
Once every two months we fire
up that car to make sure it still
runs, pretty much," he joked.
But Whalen said the best part
about electric cars, aside from
. money saved at the gas pump, is
the minimal maintenance
requirements.

"If you think about all the

vehicles in garages, exhaust
systems are corroding, gas is
getting bad, the oil is dripping


on the floor and the batteries are
going flat," Meier said. "Just

years and retires in November.
"With all that Rick has done

sendoff and what better way
than a celebrity roast to benefit
the United Way," said Nicki
Will, the United Way's chief
governance officer.
Emcees for the program,
which begins at 6 p.m., are for-
mer Sheriff's Office Capt. Jenny
Bell Thomson and US1 Radio
News Director Bill Becker.
Among mysteries to be
revealed: The sheriff's passion
for rain dances; why he's been.
known to mutter "Jeep-Jeep-

Jack's Dairy Bar (now it's a TIB
Bank branch in Marathon); and
Roth's strange fondness for

The Rosary illuminated


Key Largo
woman writes
prayer guide
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com


Part-time Key Largo resident
Peggy Olds said many Catholics
don't truly. understand the
Rosary and why it is so impor-
tant to their faith.
"Some people are not willing
to admit that they don't know it,"
Olds said.
The 69-year old Key Largo
Ocean Resorts resident recently
wrote "To Jesus through Mary"
as a detailed guide to the Rosary.
.Included is the origin of the
Rosary, all the prayers of the
Rosary, an elaborate diagram of
the methodology of the Rosary,
and explanation of each mystery
accompanied by a thought for
further meditation, and watercol-
or illustrations of each mystery.
A significant difference
between Roman Catholicism and
other Christian religions is the
deference Catholics give to
Jesus' mother, Mary.
And one of the ways
Catholics are supposed to display
this devotion is through praying
the Rosary.
The Rosary is a set of prayer
beads. Catholics praying the
Rosary say 15 decades of "Hail
Marys" with an "Our Father"
said in between each set of- 10,
according to NewAdvent.org, an
online Catholic encyclopedia. At
each set of 10 "Hail Marys,"
Catholics are supposed to medi-
tate on one of the "mysteries of
redemption."
Olds said it is important for
Catholic families to say the
Rosary together on a regular
basis, and she hopes this book
will help them pray it properly.
"Adults will be able to follow
the written instructions and read
the appropriate prayers as the
young child can follow the
prayers on the illustrated dia-
gram, counting the 10 "Hail
Marys" as they are repeated,"
Olds said.
"To Jesus Through Mary" is
the latest book Olds has written
since her "Questions for God"
series was released in 2006. She
writes the books, while all the
watercolor illustrations are done
by her friend, Audrey

Kaylin Cullinane

A recent move to the Keys is
boding well for the swimming
stroke of U.S. Junior Olympian
Kaylin Cullinane.
The 12-year-old's family came
to Marathon from Boca Raton
just two months ago and she's
already seen her times drop dra-
matically in several events.
Cullinane last weekend made the
finals of a U.S.A. Swimming-
sanctioned Junior Olympic event-


200-meter breaststroke-that she'd
never swam before moving to the

All told, Cullinane posted

freestyle, 200-meter freestyle,
100-freestyle, 50-meter freestyle,
200-meter backstroke, 200-meter

Gym as it's always been
known sits as it has for a

Emma and Olivia streets in
Bahama Village, and when
Glenwood Lopez enters its
dim coolness, the memories
wash over him.
"Before integration, this
is where we played," the
longtime coach, referee and

Deaths mar mini-season


MINI-SEASON / From 4

Urruchaga "surfaced in dis-
tress" from an estimated 20 to 25
feet of water in the area between
the new and old bridges, accord-
ing to a sheriff's office report.
He then fell unconscious and
could be revived.
A hookah rig pumps air from
a compressor on the surface
down a long hose to the diver.
On Wednesday, scuba diver
Randall Malcom, 54, of North
Bay Village died after surfacing
from a dive at Little Conch Reef,
offshore of Islamorada.
He reportedly had surfaced
and was returning to his boat but
fell unconscious and died.
Both men were diving from
private boats.
Causes of the deaths were.
unknown pending autopsy
results. Heart attacks and air
embolisms typically are the most
frequent causes cited in diving-
related deaths.
A diver died off Palm Beach
County and two men were still
missing after vanishing during
lobster dives from the mainland.
"Three [South Florida] deaths
is tragic but it's about average
for what we've come to expect


in mini-season," said FWC
spokeswoman Gabriella Ferraro.
Several observers said while
local waters were crowded with
boats arid divers, the overall
number appeared to be fewer
than past mini-seasons.
-"It was not as busy as last
year," said. Bill Estes from
Innerspace Diving on Big Pine
Key. "Our numbers were down."
Lobster could be found, espe-
cially near the Content Keys,
Estes said, but divers had to
work for them.
"Most of the people we
talked to said they got their limit,
but we didn't have too many
saying they had their limit in the
first half-hour," he said.
World Class Angler owner
Dave Navarro, a veteran lobster
diver, said Florida Bay north of
Marathon did not have large
numbers of lobster.
"It was about what we
expected," he said. "It was very
similar to last year. We went a
while seeing nothing, not even
shorts."
Reports from the oceanside

He said the logistics of the
trip are made easier by Sandy
Rios, whom Paul refers to as
"a Puerto Rican soccer mom
who loves soccer and has set
up tournaments and social

On Sunday night, Jason

does seems to work for her and
he's only been working with her
about six weeks," she said.
Cullinane said with limited
options in the Keys, she was
grateful to come into contact with
Knight.
"It surprised me that there isn't
a lot of people into swimming
down here, because it's a such a
great sport," she said, noting the
fierce competition among main-
land schools.
"It's. almost mandatory that
you are a U.S.A. swimmer to
make the team," Cullinane said.
Knight said he immediately
felt Kaylin would be a strong
"off-stroke" swimmer, a refer-
ence to non-freestyle strokes that
are much harder to master.
"She looked to me like she
was an off-stroker, but she had
good free times. We started work-

ipg and she dropped like four or
five seconds in each event,"
Knight said.
Knight said he's improved
swimmer's times in the past by
putting them through a training
regimen emphasizing strengthen-
ing the core area of the body. He
said the workout helps swimmers
make it through long-distance
off-stroke events that require
ample endurance and concentra-
tion.
Susan says the family has been
planning a move to the'Keys for
years and that Kaylin has been
,enjoying her time here. She'll be
entering eighth grade at Marathon
Middle School next year and will
continue to work with Knight.
And while she hopes her
daughter can one day become an
Olympian, Cullinane prefers to
keep things in perspective.
"A college scholarship would
be nice, too," she joked.

Gym reopened as community center


DOUGLASS / From 34

news" section of the daily
newspaper.
After 1965, Douglass
became, for a short time,
Monroe Junior College, and
then, in the '70s, an elemen-
tary school. It was closed in
1977 and, except for the gym,
demolished in 1989.
The gym sat idle for years,
angering community members


such as Charles Major, a '61
Douglass graduate and now
one of the gym coordinators.
Eventually, in the late '80s,
the city bought the building
and the adjoining block for
$650,000, and after a delay-
plagued renovation, the gym
finally reopened in 1993.
"This is a part of history,"
Major said. "Kids know their
grandparents went here. It's a
positive thing in that it keeps
kids off the streets. And it's a


safe place."
Now air-conditioned and
the home of Police Athletic
League basketball, the gym
has a green-and-gray motif.
Its plastic floor, bordered by
wooden bleachers, sits
beneath caged lights that hang
like moons. (The many small
rectangular windows are shut-
tered). A stage sits at one end,
beneath a sign that proclaims
"Frederick Douglass High
School Tigers," and there is a


weight room. I
Major, building supervisor
William Stafford and staff
members Raynor Knowles
and Ruth Gunn do not tolerate
bad behavior and stress to the
young gym goers that it's not
just about basketball. "We tell
them the sky's the limit, edu-
cation wise, and that academ-
ics are important if you're
going to accelerate in life,"
Major said.
- Avery Gardner, 19, a for-


mer Key West High athlete
and now a lifeguard at the
nearby community pool,
learned to play basketball in
the gym when it was a sweat-
box two big fans failed to
cool. He too knows its real
value.
"Without that gym," he
said at the pool this week,
"people would be out doing
stuff they have no business
doing."

Florida Statutes, within
fourteen days of receipt
of notice. The procedures
for petitioning for a hear-

sel before the end of the
time period for filing a pe-

tive hearing..

Petitions filed by any per-

titled to written notice un-
der Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, must be
filed within fourteen days
of publication of the no-
tice or within fourteen

The petitioner shall mail a
copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address
indicated above at the
time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a pe-
tition within fourteen days
of receipt of notice shall
constitute a waiver of that
person's right to request
an administrative deter-
mination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes.
Any subsequent inter-
vention (in a proceeding

tioner's representative, if
any; the Department per-

and the county in which
the subject matter or ac-
tivity is located;

(b)A statement of how
and when each petitioner
received notice of the De-
partment action;

(c)A statement of how
each petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are af-
fected by the Department
action;,

(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material

as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the
petitioner to relief; and

(g) A statement of the re-
lief sought by the petition-
er, stating precisely the
action that the petitioner
wants the Department to
take.

Because the administra-
tive hearing process is
designed to formulate fi-
nal agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means
that the Department's fi-
nal action may be differ-
ent from the position tak-
en by it in this notice. Per-
sons whose substantial
interests will be affected
by any such final decision
of the Department have
the right to petition to be-
come a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set
forth above.
